About Frances

IMG_0533My name is Frances Sutherland and I am now indulging in much more quality free time, since leaving my teaching post on early retirement in 2013. I felt that it was really important for my lifestyle and wellbeing to take on a new work/home balance.

Now I have real time to revisit hobbies and skills of the past: singing, musical theatre, knitting, sewing, cooking and fitness.Β It’s amazing how each day and week is still so full, but busy in a new and more relaxing way. I love it!

I have always been interested in technology and recently Pinterest has really got me motivated; my Boards truly reflect who I am and what I like.

Next step for me had to be writing this Blog….

I felt it was time for an update…I really am enjoying this new venture.

My blog is taking shape now, and I really have a few themes running through my posts:

  • Finding quotes
  • iPhoneography (it amazes me how great the iPhone camera really is)
  • My favourite recipes
  • Yoga & Meditation
  • Health & Wellbeing
  • Music
  • Poetry…yes even Poetry

Hope you enjoy sharing my journey and experiences with me!

  4. Hi Frances. It was interesting to read about a fellow retired teacher! Yoiu seem to have lots to do to keep you occupied. I share your love of cooking – although I don’t do a cookery blog. I adore knitting and dressmaking and have been a fitness fanatic all my life. At the moment the knitting and sewing are on hold while I get on with my books, but as soon as I finish this one, I’ll be knitting like mad for a while – I’m already feeling withdrawal symptoms. As for cooking, I tend to be more inot baking, although I experiment with new mealtime recipes now and trhen. I loved your cottage pie recipe, so I’ be gining that a try.. πŸ™‚
